    ...I was @ the RL MagMile today and had the opportunity to try the Marlow wingtip. I was hoping 7D would be a half size too big to end the obsession :confused:, but surprise, it was a great fit. My SA was kind enough to put it (and the PTB) aside until the 40% private sale and allow we to think about it. He also mentioned that typically 2-3 days before the sale, they would know about the additional kicker discounts. Since this is the first time I;ve actually seen them, these RL line of shell items are just beautiful.

    ime, yes, thus I would need a 11.5 instead of a 12. However, for others, they go tts in the 325 last. Just not me

    ^ awesome seller btw

    Hope it works out well for you! the half size is just a tad past my comfort zone. I already have numerous PTB and wingtip boots from Alden so that's how I rationalize not having to get C&J/RL.

    The 25% Give in Style just came through....do I wait on the hope that they will be part of the 40% insider sale in May or go for it now at 25%???

    I'm waiting on the 40% for my marlow wingtips - if for some reason they are out of my size or something in May, the 40% comes back in November too, most likely. Plus, last year they did a surprise 50% off earlier in the fall if I remember right (there are references to it in this thread, back then).

    Only three times?! Those boots are too spectacular to keep closeted... then again you have so much to choose from. :drool: I'd be wearing the Lindrick 2 or 3 times a week if only they had my size. :censored:

    There is a satisfaction that comes just from owning them. I see them everyday and know if I wanted to, I could. I'll begin wearing them more as I recently sold my Ravello Alden wingtip boots

    I've got a new pair of Marlow wingtips and PTBs on the way. Is it recommended that I put toe taps on as soon as I get them?

    i have them on all my shoes and i won't miss them. from nailed to flush. from metal to rubber. i highly recommend them. just stay away from the plastic nailed ons, imo.

    no problems with wooden floors in all the years.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll get the taps put on as soon as I get the shoes.
